by Pat Licata, Lake of the Woods VA REALTOR
sailboats on lakeLake of the Woods VA will be hosting a Community Open House on Sunday, May 15, 2016, from noon-4pm. Visitors will be directed to the Clubhouse by Security. At the Clubhouse, volunteers will assist visitors in finding homes for sale in which they have an interest in viewing and will be provided information regarding the properties, as well as a map showing the locations of each listing chosen. In addition, the map will include the location of our amenities, many of which will be staffed by volunteers or staff members.
A private, gated community, Lake of the Woods offers anything and everything you could possibly want. Home to two lakes (the 550 acre main lake and a 35 acre “fishing lake”), a golf course, an equestrian center, a fire and rescue department, and a church and co-op preschool all within the gates, Lake of the Woods simply has it all. Whether your passion is boating, water skiing, kayaking, golfing, horseback riding, or simply taking in the breathtaking views from the clubhouse while enjoying a fabulous meal, from your own deck or yard, or from one of the beaches, you won’t be disappointed! Perhaps you prefer a game of bridge or volunteering your time and talents…Lake of the Woods offers more than 60 clubs and/or organizations from which you may choose to become fun on the lakeinvolved.
Located in Orange County, we are fortunate to enjoy low real estate taxes. Coupled with home prices ranging from the low $100,000s to over $1,000,000, Lake of the Woods is the perfect community for both full-time residents and weekend/seasonal owners. But don’t take my word for it, please come see for yourself! Call me today at 540/735-7998 for a private tour of Lake of the Woods by boat and by car so that you may experience why we love Lake of the Woods!

The LOWdown on Real Estate at the Lake

By Pat Licata-REALTOR

2015 proved to be a fantastic real estate year for Lake of the Woods in Orange County, VA, with a total of 247 homes having sold as compared to 190 in 2014, a whopping 30% increase year-over-year! The major difference was that a substantially greater number of homes sold in the $175,000-$250,000 and $250,000-$350,000 price categories, year over year. Additionally, lots proved to be big sellers again in 2015.
Here’s a break-down of # of sales per specific price ranges for both 2015 and 2014, according to MRIS (Metropolitan Regional Information Systems), our local MLS.:
LOWDown Graph

 
Good News in 2015:●  37 lots transferred (per the MLS, but I know there were others not listed in the MLS), and 39 building permits were issued for new home construction in 2015, an increase over 2014.

● While there were 7 fewer waterfront sales in 2015, ten of the sales were over $600,000, which was the same number as in 2014.
 ● 2015 “average days on the market” for LOW was 110, and the “average sold price to original list price ratio” was 95%, exactly the  same as 2014.
So far, 2016 has been a very brisk market for the Licata Group. We look forward to continuing in that direction all year long! If you are considering selling your house, contact Pat today at 540/735-7998 for a free market analysis.
